Campus-Based Transition

Campus-Based Transition

The ESC of Central Ohio has partnered with area institutions of higher education to give Central Ohio students with disabilities an opportunity to explore, develop and refine skills necessary to enter competitive employment. Students focus on individualized transition plans to achieve future adult living and career aspirations.
 
The ESC offers three unique programs on the campuses of Columbus State Community College and The Ohio State University, which serve students 18-22 who have completed or met all graduation requirements, and have elected to defer their high school diploma. Each applicant for CBT is considered a candidate for all three programs and is accepted based upon availability, individual needs and work experience.

Each CBT classroom is staffed with a team of highly-skilled and licensed/certified staff, including: an intervention specialist, paraprofessional, and transition specialist. The CBT programs foster the greatest level of independence in student work and daily-living skills by providing links to adult services and developing self-determined, student-centered plans for the transition from school to work. Students are provided authentic learning experiences with their peers both on campus and in the community.
